Event description


Course Preview

Our first blockchain executive course was held successfully during July 18-20, 2018 in Hong Kong with participants from different sectors to learn about the frontier knowledge from experts at University of California, Berkeley. We are are not only introducing the courses to China, but also aiming to build a community with interactions in blockchain, and help to unearth more applications in different fields in China.


This course aims to provide the most pragmatic, comprehensive, and actionable introduction to blockchain and business possible. It is suitable for executives interested in how blockchain might benefit their company, builders ready to hit the ground running with a blockchain POC, innovators looking to see how blockchain can be applied to real world problems, or enthusiasts simply looking for a unique introduction and perspective on the industry.


The Berkeley blockchain and business offering differentiates itself from others by emphasizing substance over fluff. We assume no technical or blockchain background, and have carefully designed the course to develop a strong intuition of blockchain and its applications piece by piece. This allows us to maintain a high volume and quality of information while still keeping the course accessible to participants of all backgrounds.
